Five-star WR Lane drops Florida

On Aug. 12, three elite south Florida products–and friends–committed to Florida as part of the class of 2014.

As of Saturday morning, none of the three remains a Gator commitment. It all started when running back Dalvin Cook dropped Florida during Under Armour Game preparations last week, then four-star DB Chris Lammons dropped the Gators on Thursday following the commitment of five-star Jalen Tabor. Late Friday night, five-star WR Ermon Lane followed his south Florida buddies and dropped the Gators. Both Cook and Lane seem to be leaning in the direction of Florida State, while Lammons may end up at South Carolina, eventually. Also dropping the Gators in recent weeks was 2015 WR Da’Vante Phillips. All four players are from either Broward or Dade County–basically Fort Lauderdale or Miami.

Lane announced his decision on Twitter: “No Hard Feelings But I Just Decommitted From The University Of Florida . Not Because Dalvin Cook. No lie I love gator nation,” Lane Tweeted.

Lane is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound pass target.
